Rama is postponed another year! Be well friends, thanks for your support.
Stay current with our event schedule by signing up for our email list... if we plan anything fun the email list will be the first place we announce it!
Celebrate the tideflats! Every year we welcome the public to our beach to learn about oysters, oyster farming, and life in the Hood Canal, aquatic and other. We call this beach ho-down the Hama Hama Oyster Rama. It's not the biggest party in the world, but it might be the biggest subtidal one!
The Rama features tours with intertidal ecologists and oyster growers, u-pick oysters and clams, an oyster-sports competition we call the Shuckathalon, a beer and wine garden, kid's activities, live music, and various delicious food options. Every year, the Rama benefits local Hood Canal charities.
Tickets are needed for everybody 16 and up (this means folks 15 and under get in free). Tickets get you into the event and entered into a raffle drawing. Food, drink, oysters and clams are available for purchase using $5 tokens. You can buy tokens ahead of time, or at the event for cash or credit.
2020 tickets, tokens, VIP experiences and swag will go up for sale in mid to late March.
2019 Oyster Rama Donors
Thank you to the following businesses for donating to the Oyster Rama... look for their products in the food booths, silent auction, raffle, and prize packs. If you see them out and about in the real world, say thanks!
Weather appropriate gear, which can be anything from rain coats to sunglasses.
ID to prove you're over 21 (if you want to drink alcohol).
Your dog. Usually we're a dog friendly spot, but the rama is just too big and crowded.
Food or drink. There's no outside food or drink allowed inside the event.
Weed. The party's date is determined by the tide, not by any cultural significance.
Tickets & Tokens
Pay for all food, drink, oysters, and clams with $5 tokens, which you can purchase at the event for cash or credit.
$15 entrance tickets get you into the event with a door prize drawing, and are required for humans 16 and up
TBD whether we'll sell any tickets at the gate this year. If we do: day-of ticket sales will start around 12:30, after we get a sense of how crowded the event is. It is not a good idea to drive out here if you don't have tickets.
There will be EMT's on site, and first aid kits & fire extinguishers throughout the event
Everyone who walks out on the tideflats has to sign a safety waiver, and hear a speech about how to stay safe on the flats. Short version: watch where you step, stay out of fenced off areas, and don't let your kids run around.
VERY IMPORTANT: Do not park along 101. We have hordes of volunteers lined up to help you find a safe parking spot
